[audio]Spherio: Education outside the box in Paraguay - The Spherio Collective
Spherio hosts Jasmine Park, Froylan Sifuentes, and Mary Masterman interview two MIT sophomores, Coco Agbeyibor and Juan Diaz, about their international development project in Paraguay. Coco and Juan worked with a local NGO, Centro de Informacion y Recursos por el Desarollo, on the topics of science education in high schools and technical career exploration. Coco and Juan felt that in their local schooling (in Togo and Colombia, respectively), they were taught only facts and how to follow directi...

This is a dissertation about computer science education research. The abstract follows: Methodological reviews have been used successfully to identify research trends and improve research practice in a variety of academic fields. Although there have been three methodological reviews of the emerging field of computer science education research, they lacked reliability or generalizability. Therefore, because of the capacity for a methodological review to improve practice in computer science educat...

Abstract: Here we describe an ultra-low-cost origami-based approach for large-scale manufacturing of microscopes, specifically demonstrating brightfield, darkfield, and fluorescence microscopes. Merging principles of optical design with origami enables high-volume fabrication of microscopes from 2D media. Flexure mechanisms created via folding enable a flat compact design. Structural loops in folded paper provide kinematic constraints as a means for passive self-alignment...

why do we know more today than we did yesterday? One reason is that scientists engage in research. The excitement of discovering new knowledge through research is illustrated by studying the bond strength of gaseous titanium monosulfide. Gaseous TiS molecules as well as gaseous titanium and sulfur atoms are produced by the vaporization of the high melting crystalline titanium monosulfide at temperatures near 2000°K...

The role of molecular structure in determining biological activity is shown. The correlation of the structure of sulfanilamide with that of a vitamin essential for bacterial growth leads to a more general investigation of the biochemical nature of growth. Paper chromatography is used to separate some of the material found in chromosomes. It is proposed that compounds similar to those found in chromosomes may stop cell division and thus be useful in controlling cancer...

[movies]Molecular Motions (Second Edition) - CHEM Study, College of Chemistry and Lawrence Hall of Science, U.C. Berkeley
Many properties of matter such as fluidity, vaporization and rates of chemical reactions indicate that molecular motion must be occurring and that the freedom of motion increases in going from the solid to the liquid to the gaseous state. The concepts of translational, rotational, and vibrational molecular motions allow the interpretation of the observed properties. The use of animation and dynamic models makes clear how the observed properties depend on the types of motion occurring at the mole...

Observations of two spheres suspended from the terminals of a high voltage generator remind us of the principles that opposite charges attract, like charges repel, and uncharged bodies have no electric interaction. To determine quantitatively the effect of distance on electric force, a sensitive balance measures the force between two charged spheres. The distance is varied and the electric force is calculated from changes in balance readings...

The synthesis of 2-butanone, a ketone, from 2-butanol, an alcohol, as an example of a common type of organic synthesis. Three basic steps are developed: synthesis, purification, identification. In the synthesis, 2-butanol is oxidized by sodium dichromate and sulfuric acid to yield 2-butanone. Purification is accomplished by solvent extraction with ether followed by distillation of the 2-butanone. The identity of the product is established by infrared absorption spectroscopy and then more clearly...

Proton-donor-acceptor theory is used to interpret the experimental behavior of acid-base indicators. Experiments and animation show the effects on indicators of changing acidity. Equilibrium constants of four indicators are determined and the indicators arranged in order of decreasing acid strength. The competition among bases for protons is shown by mixing the indicators and showing that each changes color at different total acidity.

To explain these different results, a conceptual model is developed based on two types of molecules: polar and non-polar...

In making the fertilizer ammonium nitrate from nitric acid, it is necessary to neutralize the acidity of HNO3. This is accomplished by addition of NH3. In nitration reactions, such as the making of nitrobenzene, nitric acid is made to act as a base in the presence of sulfuric acid and forms nitronium ion which is the react...
